Viking Offroad GS-9 Winch
Viking Offroad recently introduced its very own winch to house the synthetic winch lines that Viking is best known for. The GS-9 uses sealed Albright solenoids that draw very little amperage and a cone brake outside of the drum for less heat transfer to the cable. While the GS-9 only weighs 58 pounds, it is rated at 9,000 pounds for a single line pull.

Zone Offroad Ram 1500 Lift Kits
Zone Offroad Products has added 4- and 6-inch suspension systems for the ’131⁄2-ton Ram trucks to its current kit offerings for ’94-12 Dodge Rams. These lift kits are engineered to improve the stance, ride quality, and off-road performance of your new Ram while maintaining the OE suspension geometry and factory traction control functionality. Both lift kits use a pair of heavy-duty crossmembers locked together by the differential skidplate for a solid subframe. CNC-machined steering knuckles are used to correct steering geometry on the 2013 electronic steering rack equipped trucks.

Merchant Automotive Transfer Case Pump Cover
The GM transfer cases use a gear oil pump inside the case that is driven off the main shaft. Over time the pump can wear on the rear housing and cause it to leak, potentially allowing the transfer case to run dry and cause catastrophic damage. Merchant Automotive has a solution with a billet aluminum pump cover that is thicker and stronger than stock. The kit comes complete with the necessary gasket, RTV, thread locker, and detailed instructions.

AirAid Ram Diesel Filter
AirAid now offers an affordable alternative to restrictive factory paper filter elements with a reusable drop-in filter for ’03-’12 Ram 5.9L and 6.7L Cummins turbodiesel engines. The filter element offers 35 percent more surface area than the factory filter, which improves airflow and increases service intervals. The American-made filter is constructed with a hand-poured polyurethane casing rather than rubber or Plastisol, so the filter is guaranteed not to shrink, wrinkle, or warp, and it will retain its snug fit in the factory intake box for the life of the vehicle.
